NHS Injury Allowance

Supporting nurses and midwives with Long Covid

As covid sick pay comes to an end across the UK managers should make sure their staff are aware of this scheme particularly if there is evidence that they likely caught Covid-19 at work.

“The civil burden of proof is based on the balance of probability which is defined as more likely than not and should be used to decide if the injury or disease is wholly or mainly attributable to the person’s NHS employment.” 

Several people with Long Covid have successfully applied to the scheme but, to date. Most people appear to be turned down but we hope that as covid sick pay ends this may begin to change.
